The peak season to visit the many beautiful national parks in the United States is during the summertime, but the parks can be just as beautiful and fun to visit in the wintertime. A fresh layer of snow can make the parks look entirely different and in many cases opens up new and interesting ways in which you can explore the parks.
The Galápagos Islands is one of this world’s top tourist destinations. Every year, hundreds of thousands of people flock to this island archipelago off the coast of South America to enjoy the beautiful vistas, interact with the diverse and amazing wildlife, and to scuba dive and snorkel in one of the world’s richest marine environments. The Galápagos Islands are truly one of this world’s greatest treasures and something that everyone should see in their lifetime.
The Galápagos Islands are one of this world’s most famous, and alluring, wildlife destinations. Ever since Charles Darwin visited the islands and documented the diversity of wildlife and wrote his theory of Evolution, people have been flocking to the islands to get a first-hand look at this amazing ecosystem. Not only do the Galápagos Islands have a staggering array of marine wildlife in its waters, but there are also a wide variety of birds, reptiles, and mammals found on the islands themselves.
Every year, hundreds of thousands of people flock to the Galápagos Islands to see the amazing and diverse wildlife that lives in the waters off their shores. There is no better way to get an appreciation for the diverse and amazing wildlife that call the Galápagos Island their home than to get in the water and interact with this wildlife. From the giant Whale sharks that flock to the outer islands in droves, to the amazingly large schools of hammerhead sharks, to the fun and playful Galápagos sea lions that can be found on and around the islands in abundance, there is no place quite like the Galápagos Islands for taking a snorkeling or scuba diving adventure.
We spent the afternoon exploring Puerto Ayora, which was very neat. They had some really cool shops to explore and some nice restaurants to eat at. We ate lunch at a little restaurant and then did some shopping and took some pictures. We got to see a lady cleaning some freshly caught fish and a sea lion waiting beside here ready to gobble up the scraps. That was really neat to see.
The Serengeti National Park in Tanzania is one of the most famous wildlife habitats in the world. This large park in Northern Tanzania, along with its sister park (the Masai Mara) in Kenya, plays a pivotal role in the great wildebeest migration. This great migration, which also features zebra, gazelle, and other grazing animals, brings over two million grass feeders thru the parks as they follow the rains each year. It is quite an unbelievable spectacle to behold.
National Parks and Conservation Areas are dangerous? This may sound counter-intuitive at first thought, but if you see what is happening in Isle Royal National Park in the United States, the Gir Forest National Park in India, and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area in Tanzania, it may make more sense.
